This Week On Our YouTube Channel (Feb. 5-11)

This past week was a streamlined week.  All that was released was the 6 let's play videos.  Even though I only did the 10 Minute Alone videos, I hit an important milestone in that series!  

Monday Feb. 6

Cowboy Kid (Nintendo Entertainment System) - Cowboy Kid is a completely forgotten beat 'em up with some mini game action.  It's fun to just stab people in the face and then play blackjack.  It takes place in the old west and you become the new sheriff.  Good times.  

Tuesday Feb. 7

Michael Jackson's Moonwalker (Sega Genesis) - Moonwalker is one of the classic Sega Genesis games.  You take control of the King of Pop and dance through side scrolling levels trying to rescue all of the kids that have been kidnapped.  Bubbles also makes an appearance to help lead you to the level bosses.  It's fun to see every enemy on the screen start doing the "Thriller" dance before dropping to their death!

Wednesday Feb. 8

Shinobi (Sega Master System) - For the first time, I play the video game that I only knew about from the back pages of comic books from my youth.  Shinobi is one of the defining games for the Master System.  How does it compete with the NES' Ninja Gaiden?  It's slower.  So much slower!

Thursday Feb. 9

ZOOM! (Sega Genesis) - Zoom! is a Pac-Man type puzzle game where you try light up blocks by circling the lines around it.  This is a game I had never heard about until it was suggested by one of my subscribers.  It's a fun little puzzle game that gets intense.  

Friday Feb. 10

Rampage World Tour (N64) - This is the newest game that I've played in the 10 Minutes series.  I was originally going to play the NES port of the game but for some reason I decided to give World Tour a chance.  I'm glad I did because it's a fun time with enhanced graphics and interesting power ups.  This is definitely an upgrade over it's 8-bit counterpart.  

Saturday Feb. 11

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Nintendo Entertainment System) - This is a very special episode of the series.  It's magic number 50!  That's right, I've done 50 episodes of my 10 Minute Alone Let's Play series.  I can't believe it.  So to celebrate, I decided to play a game that meant everything to me when I was a kid.  TMNT for the NES is a game that gets unfairly criticised.  No, it isn't the best Turtles game but it is a good platformer with good controls and just enough of the the TMNT license to keep it interesting.  

So there you have it. Another week in the book, another 6 let's play videos.  As I state in my TMNT video (and I mentioned in one of these recaps), I don't judge the success of my channel based on view counts.  It's a slow build and every day I see it building.  Despite that, I'd still be doing these if no one was watching.  I'm having a blast playing these games and I know at least a few folks are digging it.  That's all I can ask for.  

As far as the website is concerned, it's not going anywhere.  I've been speaking with Ben about getting more articles up on here.  We've been slack a little bit on this side with life and shit getting in the way.  More content is coming including concert reviews and articles.  So...stay tuned for more!

And if you haven't subscribed yet, feel free to give a like to the YouTube, Twitter or Facebook pages!

What is the most ICONIC Godzilla To YOU?

I need the community's help on this one.  I'm trying to figure out which version of Godzilla is the definitive version.  As fans, we've all jumped on board during different eras.  To some, the '54 version may be the iconic image that immediately springs to mind when you hear the name Godzilla.  To others, it could be one from the 80's or 90's.  It could also be one of the American versions.  I'm trying to find out which variation is the definitive version that fans think of when thinking of Godzilla.  I hope this makes sense!  
To answer this question, I've created a poll featuring every Godzilla movie (as well as an add your own spot).  Simply pick the movie that contains your ideal mental image of Godzilla.  Don't just pick your favorite movie.  Pick which movie contains that version of Godzilla that's ideal to YOU!  I'll leave the poll up for a week and when all results are tallied, we'll hopefully have an idea of what pops into people…

Alice Cooper / Columbia, SC / 5-13-17

The last time Alice Cooper made a tour stop in Columbia, SC, Jimmy Carter was president, gas was .65 a gallon and Alice was a drunken mess.  Cooper's stop at the Carolina Coliseum on June 29, 1978 was part of his King of the Silver Screen tour promoting his then current album Lace and Whiskey.  Judging by the reaction of the packed crowd that assembled to see him Saturday night, it won't take 39 years to bring his show back to town.

King Kong (1933) Movie Review

With Kong: Skull Island's release this week, it's time to take a look back at the original film that started the long tradition of giant monsters.  1933's King Kong revolutionized the way that special effects were used in film.  Never before had the world seen a movie of this scale and magnitude.  Directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack with special effects by Willis O'Brian, King Kong is simply one of the most important films of all time.
